Beautiful Woman Butterfly From Life Magazine Free PNG Image

Well...this is one of those images
that I should probably not of played with.
It comes off the internet from the
cover of an old LIFE magazine.
I just love these butterfly women and
could not resist making her into a
PNG image for my
collection of butterflies.
  I do not have the artists name
and nor do I have the original link
it came from since I picked it up
years ago.
Please keep this image for your own use.
Thank you so much

Vintage Button and Sewing Notion Collection From Leaping Frog Designs

Sometime in early October
as I was sifting  through
eBay one evening
I came  across a button
that intrigued me.
Rather large, made of metal
it was part of a larger lot.
I placed a bid and went 
along my merry way.
7 days later in my inbox
the message that I had "Won"
my lovely button and
her sisters.
I have plans for that button...It is going to 
be my master for one done
in silver with tiny fresh water
pearls from the Willamette River
Was I ever surprised by what came with it.
Beautiful beautiful buttons
Glass, lovely Victorians, Bakelite and
Mother of Pearl.
Rhinestones, Silver, Brass, Gold
Button heaven
Buckles of several eras and
Some beautiful packages
of needles
I love the wood needle case and
when I slip my fingers into
the thimbles I can just
imagine the hours and hours
of mending or dress making
they had helped make.

There are many more items
that I did not take pictures of
Tiny perfume boxes filled with little
shell buttons, another filled with
needles and pins.
A true treasure trove.
Some of these pieces may
make it into other projects.
For now they have found a new
home with me. I will cherish them
for years to come.

Beautiful Frames Free Vintage Images From Leaping Frog Designs

It seems I can never have enough
frames in my digital goody bag
I found this one a few days ago.
It is from an old card
I have removed the saying and
left it empty for you 
to fill in with your own
words or image.
